Derby County fans rage with performance of on-loan Everton man Kieran Dowell

The youngster joined the Rams during the summer for the 2019/20 campaign.

Derby County suffered their first Championship defeat of the season last night, losing 2-1 to Bristol City at Pride Park.

Goals by former Rams star Andi Weimann and Josh Brownhill ensured a big win for Lee Johnson’s men, with Jack Marriott’s goal coming proving scant consolation.

Boss Phillip Cocu is still finding his feet in English football. Since the opening weekend win at Huddersfield Town, the Rams are now three games without a victory.
